Alo: A One Woman Play Awaiting You At Monnot Theatre

After the huge success of their black comedy “Two Suspended Women” at Al Madina Theatre last December, Collectif de l’ACT is back with a new play to be performed at Monnot Theatre from March 24 until April 3, at 7:30PM.

Collectif de l’Act is a Lebanese theatre collective founded by Hagop Derghoussian alongside a group of young local professional artists. Derghoussian holds a PhD in Cinema from Saint Joseph University in Beirut, is a teacher at USJ and the Lebanese University, and has directed several plays in Lebanon, Romania, and Armenia.

“Alo” is an Arabic adaptation of the 1930 monodrama “The Human Voice” by Jean Cocteau and it features a woman in her fifties having one last phone conversation with her lover of five years who is now leaving her to marry another woman.

The monologue is directed by the president of the collective Hagop Derghougassian and performed by the multidisciplinary artist and Lebanese University graduate Angela Khalil.

Tickets are on sale at Antoine branches and online, with discounted student tickets available at the door. Get yours now and discover to where that one-sided phone conversation will lead!
